«My thematic analysis of the collected data began with the preparation of three ‘slides’ for consideration under my hypothetical collide-o-scope. The slides represent the three factors I originally posited as playing significant roles in Shawville’s resilience: geography, political economy, and socio-linguistic identity (‘Englishness’). There are several themes that weave through all three ‘slides’. Family, for example, was a significant theme in every interview and spoke to geography (making ‘place’ a question of relationship across space), political economy (speaking to making a living as a collective endeavour), and identity (identifying the deep roots and resonances of belonging).» (p. 57)
